About the Tour

**NO LAST HOUR RESERVATIONS OR FOR THE NEXT DAY ARE ACCEPTED**

The city of La Antigua Guatemala, known in colonial times as the city of Santiago de Guatemala and by others as the city of Santiago de los Caballeros de Guatemala, has always been a magical city that attracted many people since its inception in 1543, although its line begins in 1542 by the architect Juan Antonelli. The city was affected since its inception by earthquakes that were, in one way or another, shaping the unique architecture that developed in this place.

It is worth mentioning that it was the capital of the general captaincy of Guatemala, which covered from Chiapas to Costa Rica.

In this tour we will see the most enigmatic parts of the city:

- The Central Plaza

- The source of the Sirens

- The Commerce Portal

- The Palace of the General Captains

- The Palace of the Very noble City Hall

- The Cathedral (The church and its ruins)

- The frontispiece of what was the Old University of San Carlos

- The church of San Pedro (Brother Pedro Hospital)

- The Union Tank

- Facade of the convent of Santa Clara

- The church of San Francisco

- Jade Museum

- Artisan market

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: At the entrance to Cafe Condesa, in the Central Square

Great tour - I was the only person so ended up doing part English. Hector was very knowledgeable & I felt that I learned tons about the history behind the city (really eye opening; much better than just walking by things and missing all the details :) would definitely recommend!
